Today I got a strange error during the execution of errpt command: "logopen: open: No such file or directory". At first I was scratching my head a bit, but in fact it is not hard at all.
This is due to missing the needed errlog file which should be located in /var/adm/ras/. All you have to do is to recreate it.
Please read on if you do not know how.
root@aix~# errpt logopen: open: No such file or directory
root@aix~# [color=red]touch /var/adm/ras/errlog[/color] root@aix~# errpt logread: unexpected end of file Unable to process the error log file /var/adm/ras/errlog. root@aix~# rm /var/adm/ras/errlog
GOOD solution (will recreate a new 1MB errorlog file in [u]/var/adm/ras[u]):
